Parents and colleagues have contacted me this week about Netflix's "13 Reasons Why", a drama based on a novel of the same name by Jay Asher. The story depicts a high school student who kills herself and leaves behind audiotapes detailing events that led to her decision to end her life.  Though the series is receiving some acclaim, it is proving equally controversial among mental health professionals. A link to an article that recently appeared in the Chicago Tribune follows:  

It is highly likely that your older child is aware of this series, and may have viewed it.  There are many references to this series, both positive and negative, currently on most social media outlets.   I recommend that parents become aware of this series and the "talk" it is generating. There are many articles available to assist parents in talking with their children about the series as well as the difficult subject of suicide. I am including two of many in the links below:

If you or someone you know needs help, call 1-800-273-8255 for the
